Very good left lane now the current calander we use was designed in the 15 hundreds we all know a day is morning to dark and a night is from dark to light but bow did they come up with a year? And a leap year? Now if it's off by the 11 minutes it was changed from. What if it's off more or less what kind of twist does that.put on us and the weather? How would we ever know? Just probably over thinking but it's interesting to me. What do you all think?

If a canine's smell is 100 times better than ours, why do they have to get so close to sniff each other's butt? I'm baffled.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???
